Michael Laufbahn on Easle

We’re ex-freelance. ex-ad agency, ex-music industry - and we’ve all seen how the current system isn’t working for anyone, on any side of the fence. So we’ve decided to rise out of our inertia and try to make it better.

We’re calling bullshit to how creative talent is being found and hired. On star ratings to grade talent, on selling off time by the hour, on working for free, on flogging your time and jobs on social media. But most importantly, we’re calling time on quality being a secondary consideration to the lowest price. We believe in the value of good craft - and the value of tech as a solution for discovering, briefing and paying talent.

So we’re bringing the trusty easel into the 21st century and supporting the creative community online, by putting work first, and fostering a community of clients and creatives who value the creative purpose. Every creative featured is hand selected by our team of ambassadors, and to ensure our top quality talent is getting top quality work - we vet our clients too. But by cutting out the middleman - letting you discover, chat and brief directly - we’ve reduced the cost for creatives and clients. Our easy payment and management systems then take care of the boring bits - letting you get on with doing what you do best: creating great stuff.
